Default Re: Marvin Hagler vs Jake LaMotta at Middleweight

I`ve given my opinion on this matchup several times in the past and I can`t be arsed to do it again, I just want to add a big LOL!! to the folks who say Hagler by TKO/KO, what planet are you guys living on? We are matching each man at their respective peaks here, and neither man is stopping the other at each others best, not even on cuts imo.

I mean for ****s sake Jake rumbled with murderous punching guys like Satterfield, Marshall, Robinson, Murphy, Nardico, Raadik, etc... and was only ever floored once at the tail end of his career by big lightheavyweight Danny Nardico who if nothing else could punch like a mules kick. Hagler ain`t got the firepower to get Jakes respect let alone stop him in his tracks with a single shot, he simply does not have that kind of power. Hagler was a hurtful puncher, but far from a devastating one.
